Fliers In Favour Of E-cigarette 'vaping Zones'

Best Electronic Cigarette Reviews Reveal Chicago to Crackdown on Vaping





Among the smokers questioned, the percentage of those in favour was 70 per cent, and among non-smokers 50 per cent. On Monday electronic cigarette manufacturer Gamucci opened a 323 square foot (30 square metre) vaping zone in the International Departures Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 4, next to luxury brand and duty-free shops. It is currently the only indoor area in which passengers can smoke e-cigarettes, and sells only Gamucci's line of products. E-cigarettes do not produce smoke but instead emit a similar-looking vapour, which may mean that passers-by mistake those using them for standard smokers. The British Medical Association has advised that e-cigarettes be included in the ban on smoking in public spaces, because they may make "cigarette use seem normal in public and at work." Heathrow has designated areas for the smoking of traditional cigarettes outside the terminal building but its website states: Electronic cigarettes are subject to the same restrictions as standard cigarettes and therefore cannot be used inside terminal buildings, except in the designated e-cigarette lounge in Terminal 4. They can be carried on your person, but please check with your airline on whether they are allowed on board the aircraft.

CDC Belatedly Reveals That Smoking By Teenagers Dropped While Vaping Rose





The city would also make it mandatory for all e cigarette dealers to be licensed. Many electronic cigarette reviews argue that current Mayor Rahm Emanuel is working in tandem with Aldermen Will Burns and Edward Burke to target any such products that are and can be used to lure minors into smokers and in turn into a lifetime nicotine addiction. Their first proposed ordinance is aimed at regulating all e cigarettes products as tobacco products that would be subject to the City of Chicagos smoking ban. This would result in vaping products being be moved and positioned behind the counter of all retail stores as well as banning the sales of these products to minors. In addition all mature smokers will be banned from using vapor cigarette products in all of indoor Chicago areas with the exception of private residence homes and personal vehicles, smoking approved hotel rooms and at a distance of at least 10 feet from building entrances. The second ordinance that is being proposed would ban the sale of all menthol flavored tobacco products in an area that is within 500 feet of Chicago schools based on the local electronic cigarette reviews.

New York City May Ban Vaping Because It Looks Like Smoking





And vaping is just the tip of the awkward e-cigarette terminology iceberg. The website Ecigology (itself a terrible word that deserves to be bludgeoned to death) has a glossary teeming with ridiculous new words and phrases. It's a world of "carts" and "cartos" that you fill with "smoke juice" and accessorise with "a drip tip", being careful not to "flood your atty" and diminish your "throat hit". Imagine being the sort of person who actually talks like this. It'd be like living your entire life inside an Australian remake of A Clockwork Orange directed by Chris Morris.

But the omisision is puzzling only if you assume the CDC is mainly interested in the truth, as opposed to scientific-sounding justifications for an irrational anti-vaping prejudice. Boston University public health professor Michael Siegel, who sees e-cigarettes as a valuable harm reduction tool, comments : This decline in cigarette smoking was not reported in the earlier CDC report on the increase in electronic cigarette use, nor was it mentioned in any of the multitude of interviews or news articles regarding the increase in youth e-cigarette use. The opportunity to see the data on trends in cigarette smoking would have helped the public to see that there was no scientific support for the CDCs conclusion. I thus find it curious that these important data were not reported until weeks after the media [had] already disseminated the conclusion that e-cigarettes are a dangerous gateway to cigarette smoking. The CDC officials certainly had plenty of opportunity to let the public know that there was no discernible increase in cigarette smoking among youth concomitant with the observed increase in e-cigarette use. It seems to me that this is a critical finding to report.

Is 'vaping' .. [read more] really the best word for smoking e-cigarettes?





Gennaros rationale for banning vaping in bars and restaurants actually is similar to the motivation for banning smoking in bars and restaurants. The official rationale for such laws is protecting employees, and their popularity can be explained by the simple fact that most people find tobacco smoke distasteful, whether or not they actually worry about the long-term health consequences of sitting in a smoky bar for 30 years. But from a public health perspective, the real payoff, in terms of reducing morbidity and mortality, is deterring smoking by making is less convenient and less socially acceptable. Gennaro worries that e-cigarettes will undermine that goal. That seems rather implausible, since the main selling point of e-cigarettes is that they eliminate tobacco, its combustion products, and the health hazards associated with them. Although theTimessays vaping in public remains legal thanks to a loophole in New Yorks smoking ban, the truth is that vaping remains legalprecisely becausevaping is not smoking.
